wise sons

i had gone to a school that was jewish affiliated.  what i remember most are the pastrami, cornbeef, and egg salad sandwiches, pickles, and potato salads that filled our school sponsored lunches.  i was so excited to try this place because it had a menu full of items that are nostalgic for me and it’s been a while since i have had good jewish deli food.

first off, the pickles, coleslaw, and potato salad were delicious.  those are items often left half finished with a hearty sandwich, but today, ever single morsel was finished.   and everything is served on rye!  i love rye!

next was matzo ball soup.  i have some foodie friends who really enjoy it at Max’s opera house, but i think this one is far better.  the airiness of this matzo ball is not only delicate and really allowed the soup to soak through.  on a raining/foggy san francisco day, this really hit the spot!
